I used to like to read National Review back when William F. Buckley was the editor. Although conservative, he was intelligent, with a dry sense of humor (and, besides, I was more conservative back then when I was naive.) The people running it now don't even try to write intelligently. They have become part of the Tea Party snarling pack of wild dogs determined to rip the flesh off any liberal or imagined liberal they can find.
But, I had to smile when I became upon Jay Nordlinger's article in National Review huffing and puffing about the leftist domination of new music. His attempt to turn sounds into some kind of political statement is just stupid, but he did mention Son Number Two's JACK Quartet, and there is no thing as bad publicity in the arts world. He lumps JACK in with the whole leftist music conspiracy, which is fine by me. They could be criticized for a lot of things worse than being part of a leftist cabal.
Now another blogger, takes after Nordlinger with a vengeance. He calls Nordlinger a "nasty cretin" and "an obvious idiot and a boor." I don't know why he's holding back. I could give him some additional epithets, but Nordlinger doesn't deserve the time and space. I will make sure that the blogger gets on JACK's mailing list.
